Favourite XA-XC limited edition

Hey guys,

In the 70s Ford loved nothing more than a limited production car with a spiffy paint job.

Which is your favourite?

My pick is the green/green superbirds. Lime green really suits the XA shape & you couldnt miss them on the road.

Gone the green/white Gossy they in my eyes represent just how crazy the 70s were.

Re: Favourite XA-XC limited edition

I agonized over this. The Cobras look the business and so do the Goss Specials. My vote went to the Blue on White Goss.

Would love to have any of these in my garage!!!!

Re: Favourite XA-XC limited edition

I went for the blue on white Goss aswell
I just like the way the paint outs down the side match the coupe's shape

Also the white 12 slotters look great, tough but kinda classy at the same time if that makes sense

Re: Favourite XA-XC limited edition

I went Green/Green XA as I think they are a great example of what the fatory could get away with in the hacient days of Retro..., but there are some great dealer specials also, like my 75 City Ford Thorn Red Moffat Racing - yeah yeah OK, biased! McLeod Horn Cars Rock as well IMHO!

What about favourite 70's cruising tune?

Re: Favourite XA-XC limited edition

God this was a tough one

I went for the white&blue Goose, a close one over the Moffat XC 4 door.
(Shock result! Goss beats Moffat in close contest, details to follow -grin)

Cobras were OK. I hated them at the time, coz the were lairy but lacked any special go-fast bits (except for the first 30). But over the years i have come to like them, more for nostalgia's sake.

oh and I think Valiant Drifter vans were great!
I got pix of a white one with blue stripes. It looks really cool in a 70s way.

I also liked the XC and XD Sundowner Falcons.

Any of the above would look great in my driveway, tho the mrs informs me theres NO WAY im getting a Shaggin-wagon, errr F--K truck, umm sin bin, umm Panel Van i mean!

Gotta love the cobra but the John Goss hardtops are cool too.
